Crank’d show takes live action to another level at Motorcycle Live

Posted on


The ‘live’ in Motorcycle Live is being taken to a whole new level this year with a brand-new action-packed stunt show that threatens to rip the roof off The NEC!

Crank’d takes home-grown superstars from motorcycle trials, BMX, mountain bike trials, and road bike stunt riding and blends these pedal and petrol-powered performers together for a battle of the cranks over a specially-constructed indoor playground of dirt ramps, jump boxes, high jumps and flatbed sections.

With internet sensation Christian ‘DJ-BBQ’ Stevenson hosting three shows each day and four at a weekend over the duration of Motorcycle Live, Crank’d will feature former Motorcycle Trials Junior World Champion Jack Challoner alongside Alexz Wigg. Two-time World BMX Champ Kye Forte will also take part with fellow BMX riders Ben Hennon, Bob Manchester and Kona Hellier, plus former British MTB Trials champion Chris Doney along with Chris Akrigg. All riders will also take part in autograph sessions.

Last summer 30-year-old Forte broke the Guinness World Record for a BMX High Jump when he cleared a bar set at almost 21 feet – an achievement that’s attracted in excess of 200,000 YouTube views. The exact same ramp will be used in the Crank’d set up with another attempt at the Guinness World Record taking place during Motorcycle Live.

The Crank’d live action show will take place in the centre of Hall 4 - Free of Charge - at the following times:

- 11.30, 1.00pm, 2.30pm and 4.00pm Friday, Saturdays and Sundays

- 12.00, 2.00pm and 3.30pm on Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday

Advance tickets are just £17 per adult, £11 for Seniors and £7 for children aged 6-16* (kids aged five and under accompanied by a paying adult go free).
